We want a human-scale version of the classic Wire & Bead Maze of our youth in Downtown Oakland.

Everyone at one point or another has had hours of fun and educational play on a wire and bead maze. That is why we wish to build a large scale version of this classic toy from reused building materials.

The Bead Maze will take up a space of 6ft x 6ft x 5ft. The entire structure will be open to neighborhood personalizing. All will be welcome to make it their own by painting any number of the 6in wooden beads before or during the installation’s existence. The more the better. It’s a bead maze canvas for those to leave a little mark of their own, for a time.
